  Paper Details How Mastering Application Performance is Critical in Helping
     Banks Stay Ahead of the Competition by Improving Customer Experience

DETROIT, Feb. 5, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Compuware Corporation (Nasdaq:CPWR),
the technology performance company, today announced that it has published a
new whitepaper titled: "A New Competitive Differentiator For Banks." The paper
explores how banks have no other choice but to master application performance
management (APM) in order to stay ahead of their competition.

In today's saturated banking market, banks must deliver best-in-class services
that ensure a positive banking experience to retain customers, attract new
ones and provide uninterrupted and reliable productivity-increasing
applications to their employees.

When it comes to banking, customers expect the utmost speed and flexibility.
Any disruption or slowdown in service -- whether to a key application or
website -- has a direct impact on customer satisfaction, revenue and brand
image. A bad customer experience can make or break a customer returning to a
bank to do business, making poor application performance unacceptable.

This whitepaper outlines:

  *what steps banks take to grow and diversify and their impact on the IT
  *the new challenges for IT departments to deliver without compromising the
    quality of service; and
  *how the performance of key applications must be at the center of any IT
    improvement, consolidation or migration initiative.
